The Feldenkrais Method

It is often assumed that to improve movement we need to get fitter or stronger, run more and work out at the Gym with weights. There are of course great benefits to doing this BUT the question is, how hard do we have to push to improve? The answer lies in awareness through movement classes as we find that there is more to improving movement than increasing effort or intensity. During the class we explore factors such as movement direction, orientation, timing, and speed. There is also the relationship between what we feel, think, internal and external sensing and movement to explore. Each term we will continue to enjoy movement for movement’s sake and follow that oft heard phrase, “it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey”.  Finding many options in movement, or even just “making the impossible, possible” may be very satisfying for us. Why should we settle with one way of doing something or only one destination?
